Foundation Tuition Scholarship Program

Your donation. Their full tuition.

The Foundation Tuition Scholarship Program is funded through the generosity of donors and efforts, such as the annual Arts and Crafts Fair.

Students who live in Herkimer County and graduate from a Herkimer County high school in the top 15 percent of their class may be eligible for the Foundation Tuition Scholarship. A limited number of scholarships are available for non-resident Herkimer County high school graduates. Recipients of the Foundation Tuition Scholarship must use the scholarship beginning in the semester immediately following high school graduation.

Recipients will receive full resident tuition, less any aid received from the Federal Pell Grant, New York State Tuition Assistance Program (TAP), and other scholarships or grants designated for tuition for the first two semesters. The scholarship is renewable contingent upon maintaining eligibility. For the third and fourth semesters, recipients who maintain eligibility will receive 50 percent of resident tuition, less any aid received from the Federal Pell Grant, New York State Tuition Assistance Program (TAP), and other scholarships or grants designated for tuition.
